I imagine it would depend on the journal.  You may want to check Paul
Hengen's column in one of the Trends in ... journals; Paul regularly cites
information he's received on bionet.methds-reagnts.

There is an accepted method for citing internet and Usenet posts for the
MLA style; a summary written by Janice R. Walker is on the web, of course,
at various places including 
<http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/TeachingLib/Guides/Internet/MLAStyleSheet.html>
and
<http://www.cas.usf.edu/english/walker/mla.html>.  


The example she cites for Usenet communications is -

Newsgroup:
       York, Ian. "Re: Wonder Bread Psychosis." alt.folklore.urban. (18
       Oct 1995). 

-thus neatly preserving for posterity the definitive proof that I'm a
shiftless wastrel with too much time on his hands.  And I don't even get
royalties.

Posted and mailed.
